Homemade Baby Food Recipes : Homemade Finger Foods for Babies


Hi, this is Shanis Windland on behalf of Expert
Village and in our video series on making your own baby food, I’m going to talk a little
bit about making baby some finger foods. You want to get your baby starting to eat finger
foods as fast as possible. You’ll find that they love trying to feed themselves and although
it makes a mess, it’s a, it gives you a chance to eat and they really have a lot of fun with
it. So this is just a couple of ideas for some finger foods for babies. I think one
of the classics is just regular toasty o’s for your baby. I like to just put a couple
on his tray and as he gets more finger dexterity, he’s able to pick them up a little bit easier
but it’s really cute to try to watch him eat cheerios. And then also, I made this way back
toast and it’s in a nice, perfect size, smaller babies can’t really grab with their thumb
and forefinger that well so they can kind of hold this in their hand like this and munch
on it and they love that while they’re teething as well. I also like to keep cheese sticks
around. These are really easy to just open up and just pick off a couple of pieces for
baby to munch. Apple is another good one. You would think you want to have really small
slices of apples for your baby but actually, if you make them a little bit bigger, like
maybe about the size of this toast, it makes it a little bit easier for baby to grab onto
and they’re pretty good at chewing off little pieces that they can actually swallow. And
one of my favorite finger foods, and this is actually how my son started feeding himself
is this wonderful net contraption that somebody invented and this is really great because
I like to get frozen fruit and you simply just take the frozen fruit and smash it into
this net and it’s great because there’s a lot of different kinds of frozen fruit that
they can’t eat just by themselves like blueberries, when they’re really small, they can easily
choke on them.
